This could be a really nice addition to downtown. Something for locals and tourists. Good use of an underutilized space.

It is an appealing idea. Matches nicely with a really vibrant craft beer scene. Plays up the "British" element of Victoria that tourists seem to enjoy. I mean, it's not pygmy marmosets, but it should beat the B.C. Experience as a tourist draw.

Maybe they could have a huge relief map of Scotland.

I noticed that two upcoming events have moved to the conference centre, from where they used to be.

 

Colour the Pallett.  Was at UVic.

Souper Bowls of Hope.  Was at Laurel Point.

 

I know we have new people selling the conference centre space now.  I wonder if this is part of it, or if they have changed pricing.

Culinaire moved from Crystal Gardens to the main conference centre room and the event greatly suffered as a result. It was super tight, hectic, and you couldn't remain in one spot to try the food, you had to keep moving.

Oh, they scored the Vic Derman memorial on the weekend.  Never seen one of those there before, have we?

Do we not have a conference centre thread? Anyway, I sure don't like the changes to the entrance as envisioned here...

Some fairly significant changes proposed over all. I agree the Douglas Street entrance doesn't seem like an improvement.

It will be nice to see that semi-permanent tent replaced with a real structure. I am not 100% certain the addition integrates well with the original building though.

And that was before Bosa decided to build the residential building at the bus depot location, of course.

Some of the previous posters are really out of touch eh!   :wave:

A residential development at the bus depot location would preclude an expansion of the Conference Centre?

In terms of the renderings above, yes.

I meant more in terms of a CC expansion in general.

I think they're having a hard enough time as it is filling the existing spaces they have.

I'd just like to see that hideous tent on the plaza removed for good.
